Born today, you are a creative, energetic and capable individual for whom luck will surely play a key role -- in both your professional affairs and your personal life. Call it what you will -- "fate," "destiny," "the stars" or merely "good fortune" -- you understand that there are unseen influences with which you must cope on an almost daily basis. Many focus only on the good things that luck can bring, but you are keenly aware that "luck" goes both ways. When it is with you, good things do indeed happen, and you are grateful for them; when it is not, you can expect things to happen that perhaps drive you into corners or cause you to do things that are detrimental to you.
You're likely to make quite a name for yourself, and despite the fact that you can be intensely private (for you were born on the cusp, after all!), you are also quite adept at playing to an audience, and this ability will serve you well in many aspects of your life.
Also born on this date are: Daniel Radcliffe, actor; Slash, guitarist; Woody Harrelson, actor; Marlon Wayans, actor; Philip Seymour Hoffman, actor; Monica Lewinsky, White House intern; Stephanie Seymour, model; Alison Krauss, singer; Don Drysdale, baseball player; Edie McClurg, actress; Raymond Chandler, author; Don Imus, radio personality.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
THURSDAY, JULY 24
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Reports will have you choosing the lesser of two evils when, in fact, your own instincts would yield something much better.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You will feel compelled to warn another about a growing situation of which you do not have a complete understanding.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The difference between firm knowledge and simple guesswork will be made clear to you throughout the day. You know which is better for you!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're further from your starting point than you have been in the past, yet you are no nearer your stated goals. What's diverting you?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You are grappling with a few difficult issues at this time. See if you can't clear your schedule somewhat to give yourself some rest.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may encounter conflicting reports about what has recently happened in the vicinity of your own home. Time will sort it out.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Others are likely to gravitate toward you throughout the day, under the impression that you have something hidden from view.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- It's not up to you to decide what shall be done if the plan goes awry; you must leave that to someone else who knows better.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may discover that a certain habitual activity is actually not good for you, as it can leave you in a mood that is less than productive.
